Sue Wilson Thank you Friend card

Hello everyone and I hope you are looking forward to a fun weekend. To start it off, we have a new challenge over at Simply Create Too

Simply Create Too Challenge Blog

It is a colour challenge this time and we are asking you to use pink and brown on a card. I was chuffed to bits when I saw this one because I think these two colours go beautifully together and I couldn't wait to get started.

I started by cutting a square from brown textured card and then used one of the Sue Wilson Noble Classic Adorned Squares dies to cut out the centre. I then placed a square of  pink card behind, so it shows through the flowers, before cutting one of the larger dies in pink card and placing that on top.

For the stamping, I used a Happy Little Stampers 'Thanks' stamp from the Doodled Flowers set,  and heat embossed it in white. I had fun arranging the words along the bottom of the card, and I very nearly got the line straight after about 10 attempts lol! They are from the Avery Elle Simply Said: Amazing set. This set is quite fancy so I thought it demanded a bit of bling, so a few glitter dors finished it off.

As I said, I love pink and brown and herehere and here, are a few links to other cards I have made with this combo.

The rest of the team also have some goodies to show you so why not pop over to the Simply Create Blog and be inspired to join us this time.

Thanks for stopping by
